On this day
On this day 32 years ago today.. My 1st time in the big city alone. I think back and never regret my choices so long ago. I had asked all my home town friends if they wanted to tag along. None came and many regretted.
Listening to this one very early this morning. 5 stars for this one. The sound quality doesn't get much better then this unless there. Thank you for the work you put into to keeping the spirit of the best touring band EVER.

love the matrix sound
really it's the best of both crispness of the board with the energy of an aud. funky Shakedown, sweet Candyman and the Dupree's is off the charts. this Garden show smacks you in the head right out of the gate. the 2nd set surely won't dissappoint either nice tight versions of Scarlet/Fire & Terrapin. liked the Spanish Jam> Truckin'> Other one run too into a decent Stella.Five for the matrix 4 for show good listen fer sure

Top Notch Set List
The best version of Shakedown Street I have ever heard opens this show. Awesome version of Dupree. This concert just rocks the house from the opening notes.

Dupree's Diamond Blues
This is a great matrix sbd of a great show that gets overlooked and should be put out there by Dave's Picks. I went to all the MSG shows after 79 and this one stands out for me very much because of the Dupree's and the IAON after it. Don;t get me wrong, the Shakedown was awesome but when they played Dupree'the whole show went up a notch and the Garden was strapped in for the ride.Just listen to Jerry's struming at the end of on Good Times and you know what I mean. I was tripping my balls off this night and could only remember what I stated about the Dupree's but I do remember what crazy good time everybody had in my section for this show. When it all ended we made it out into the cool autumn night of Manhattan and I remember WPLJ had some people giving out these Stealie stickers that were like patches endorsing the station and the 2 nights the Dead were playing MSG. Another cerebreal evening with the greatest band in the world! 5 star for the show and 5 for the great recording.Put the headphones on for this one and get ready for a good ride.

How did I miss this show? I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I'm an old schooler that has been stuck in the seventies too long. This show is unbelievable. This show just took the #1 spot for the 80's for me.Opening with Shakedown and closing with Touch - awesome.
Not only is the setlist perfect, but the boys are full-on charged in this show right outta the gate with Brent leading the way. And finally, just when you couldn't imagine this show getting any better, along comes Hunter who adds his brand of magic to it. Hats off to you good sir, this is delicious!
In fact, I think I'm gonna put this show in my top 10 list - it's that good.

Everything Hunter Seamons touches turns to gold. I've dumped all my old copies to replace them with his.
Way to go!!

Go Brent, Go
From the opening notes, Brent is right on target. He is playful and seems to bring the rest of the band with him. By the time Shakedown is half way over, the rest of the boys have caught his fever.
The sound is great and the setlist superb. Nice addition to my collection. Thanks for adding it to the archive.
